About us

The team behind Nyfiken consists of Irina and Pil. We are passionate about research, research politics, and research communication.

Nyfiken wants to make research available and accessible to everyone, through podcasts, articles and other media. What we aim for with this platform, is to create a complete picture of research done in Scandinavia and, later on, the rest of Europe. We present research from all fields. For now we focus on work done by PhD candidates, as this covers the full diversity and complexity of academic research.

As a part of Nyfiken, we have been running a podcast since 2020. For each episode, we interview a recent PhD graduate about their research.

And by the way, Nyfiken is the Swedish word for CURIOUS.

Irina Dumitru has a PhD in quantum information theory, with a thesis on the geometry of quantum measurements.

Pil Saugmann has a PhD in theoretical Physics. She does her research within the field of condensed matter theory, focusing on ultra cold atoms in optical lattices.
